A neurosurgical management of an open compound depressed fracture perforating the superior sagittal sinus is reported. Undue bleeding from the fracture did not allow a conservative management. The patient had been operated primarily at an outside emergency surgery unit. Profuse uncontrollable bleeding made a tamponade of the sinus necessary for transportation to our neurosurgical department. After reconstruction of the sinus he survived without evidence of a neurological deficit.
